“Croatia” demo surfaced

August 19, 2018  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Out of the blue, the demo version of the still unreleased song “Croatia” recently surfaced on the internet. It was posted on YouTube on the ‘Cranberries Music Video Edits’ channel.
Please note the images in this video are nothing official, obviously, and only the audio part really counts.

As you may know, the song is actually a Dolores O’Riordan solo song (AYL era) not The Cranberries.
Thanks for this gem!

Tributes to Dolores continue

August 18, 2018  |  Comments Off on Tributes to Dolores continue  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

More than 7 months after the passing of Dolores, tributes all over the world continue. We can’t review them all as they are too many, however let’s note 3 interesting ones which just happened these last few days:

The first tribute is currently hanging proudly at Connolly’s Cross, Co.Limerick. It was made by the art school ‘Class Art Studio’ from Ballyadam, Pallasgreen, Co Limerick. Over 30 children worked on different parts of the mural, each painting an individual butterfly inspired by The Cranberries song “Just My Imagination”.
More photos on the Class Art Studio’s Facebook.

Second tribute to notice concerns a band called ‘whenyoung’ who covered “Dreams” to pay their respect to a band who inspired them. The band members grew up in Limerick too…
The song is now available on Spotify and you can watch below the video posted on Vevo/YouTube:

The 3rd interesting tribute just happened a few hours ago on the Irish TV channel RTÉ One where the national school choir from Moyross, The Corpus Christi School Choir, performed “Dreams” in a show called ‘Up For The Match’ ahead of this Sunday’s All Ireland Final.
The performance was just posted on YouTube:

“No Need To Argue” blue vinyl: first images

July 17, 2018  |  Comments Off on “No Need To Argue” blue vinyl: first images  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The first images of the limited edition “No Need To Argue” blue vinyl just appeared on the internet (on eBay). This is a new color made by Runt and now in stock and available on their website for $29.98
Not to be confused with the Clear & Blue version already released a few months ago.

It seems that this version replaces the Pink & Orange one supposed to be released on May 4, 2018 and which never saw the light. Indeed the old Pink & Orange page now displays this Blue vinyl.

A bench in memory of pupil Dolores O’ Riordan

June 7, 2018  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Two days ago the Catholic Voluntary Secondary School for girls Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ based in Limerick published on Facebook a photo of a bench they unveiled last week as a tribute to their former pupil Dolores O’ Riordan.

Our Comhairle na nDaltaí unveiled a bench in memory of our past pupil Dolores O’Riordan last week. It is placed in our 6th year garden with lyrics of her music to provide inspiration for years to come. Míle buíochas for such a beautiful and fitting tribute.

The bench features three lines in Gaeilge and English: a quote from the song “Ordinary Day” along with Dolores O’ Riordan’s name written in Irish as the school is a school where Irish is the medium of instruction.

1971 DOLORES NI RIORDAIN 2018
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF ALONG THE WAY
LIVING THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF YOUR DREAMS

We do not know yet whether the bench is in a private space reserved for students or if it’s accessible to all who’d like to come and visit. A great tribute, for sure!

The lads back in studio to record next Cranberries album

April 17, 2018  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries are in studio this week to record the next (and possibly final?) Cranberries album. These last 24 hours, they published a few photos on their Instagram account:

    “So we start the album”

    Mike

    “Back in the studio” – (Noel with a new tattoo)

    “Day 2 of recording”

Let’s note the band was in studio last week as well (or maybe just Noel?), at the famous Abbey Road studios in London, to remaster the “Everybody Else…” album for the 25th Anniversary edition that should be released later this year.

This week, the three of them gathered at Kore Studios, in London too, to record a brand new Cranberries album. For those who are wondering how they’ll be dealing with vocals without Dolores, please keep in mind the last interview Noel Hogan gave to RollingStone: “I spoke to Dolores last Friday and she was great. We spoke about getting back to work – recording and new tracks we were working on. She sent some of those tracks to me by email on Sunday morning”, as well as the band’s recent statement: “we will also be completing the recording of a new studio album as previously announced, which we also started last year and for which Dolores had already recorded the vocals.

Everyone can easily imagine how painful going through these tracks must be for the lads. Like many fans who are supporting them through social media, we’re sending love and courage to Noel, Mike and Fergal.

We love you guys, In It Together!

Possibly the earliest The Cranberry Saw Us photo ever! (UPDATED)

April 14, 2018  |  Comments Off on Possibly the earliest The Cranberry Saw Us photo ever! (UPDATED)  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

*****VERY RARE*****
Do you recognize those teenagers, how old were they?
Do the math, this photo of the foursome The Cranberry Saw Us was published on 27 January 1990 in a local newspaper called “Limerick Tribune” along with a review of their very first demo cassette, “Anything”.
The singer at the time was Niall Quinn, he is on the very left and you probably know the names of the others. One of the earliest photos of the band ever… if not the earliest(?)

Niall Quinn (16), Mike Hogan (16), Fergal Lawler (18), Noel Hogan (just turned 18)

The complete Limerick Tribune article is available on the magazine section or directly by clicking here. This is the earliest article about The Cranberry Saw Us known to this day.

Thanks to Sue for this gem!


UPDATE – APRIL 15

Niall Quinn posted on Twitter a few more details about this photoshoot, the only one The Cranberry Saw Us (with him as singer) did:

What songs for Everybody Else’s 25th Anniversary album?

April 12, 2018  |  16 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

As you may have already seen on socials, earlier today The Cranberries posted a video and a photo on Instagram from the famous Abbey Road Studios in London where they are currently remastering “Everybody Else…” for the album’s 25th anniversary.

As a reminder the classic album counts 12 tracks:

1.  I Still Do
2.  Dreams
3.  Sunday
4.  Pretty
5.  Waltzing Back
6.  Not Sorry
7.  Linger
8.  Wanted
9.  Still Can’t…
10. I Will Always
11. How
12. Put Me Down

and the “Complete Sessions” album released in 2002 added 6 more tracks:

13.   Reason
14.   Them
15.   What You Were
16.   Liar
17.   Pretty (Prêt-à-Porter Movie Remix)
18.   How (Radical Mix)

Let’s note the band earlier mentioned they would be including some unreleased tracks and other bonus material from the era on this anniversary edition of the album. The fans already know of 5 unreleased songs from this period, thanks to bootleg recordings, as some of these were played a few times live in concert in the early years:

A IOSA
FALSE
LIKE YOU USED TO
SAME OLD STORY
SERIOUS

The question is… have all these songs been recorded in studio back then?
And what about some more unknown songs we would never have heard about, is there at least one or two somewhere?
Could the 25th Anniversary Album be an ultimate double CD/LP including all those 23 or more songs?
Time will tell… but today, the remastering has just started and it’s a bit of a nice news at this difficult time!

Dolores O’ Riordan voicemail audio – 15 Jan. 2018 1:12 AM (GMT)

April 5, 2018  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

TMZ published on their website and YouTube a voicemail audio message Dolores left for label executive Dan Waite on 15 January 2018 at 1:12 AM (GMT) to let him know how Bad Wolves version of Zombie “sounds fucking terribly good“.

Everyone knows TMZ and the sensationalism side, that’s why they’re surfacing this and writing “The Final Voicemail”. The final voicemail, this we can’t really know but for sure some of the very last words said by Dolores just a few hours before she was found dead. Very moving or very disrespectful, up to you!
